Confidently Ask Your Heavenly Father

2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. ~ James 4:2

My initial definition of prayer was just communion with God. It was just conversing with Him. Prayer to me was just talking to God, but after looking into it, prayer is actually a very specific way of talking to God. The Word prayer here is the Greek word proseuchē (προσευχή), which means petition. Many people may think that this isn’t that big of a deal, but this is actually a really big deal.

A lot of people don’t actually like to ask God for things, they feel like they’re bothering Him, but that is the very purpose of prayer. It’s to make your petition known to God. It’s to ask for what you need. Why? Because it teaches us to depend on God and not ourselves. It teaches us to depend on God and not others. You aren’t being prideful or expecting too much from God because you ask for things from Him. Our Heavenly Father delights in blessing His Children.

Never allow the enemy to instill false humility in you because you will miss out on the good things God has in store for you. The enemy knows that the earnest prayers of the righteous will break through any stronghold that he has set up, so he tries to tell you that you shouldn’t make your requests known. Ask, and you shall receive. Seek, and you shall find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. Don’t allow the enemy to trick you into missing out on your blessing.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Confidently Ask Your Heavenly Father.
